16, 2011 – Ponte Vedra Beach, FL – Veteran
author Dr. Karen Moriarty announced today
the release of Defending a King~His Life
& Legacy (by Infinity Publishing).
Understanding that “bizarre behavior is
normal in bizarre circumstances,” Dr.
Moriarty leads readers carefully through the
maze of stunningly bizarre events and
circumstances of Michael Jackson's life.
With previously unknown revelations, the
King of Pop is disclosed as a complex and
vulnerable man who lived—and struggled--at
the pinnacle of human existence.
the wake of the disturbing manslaughter trial
of Dr. Conrad Murray, in which the defense and
often the media sordidly tried to put
Michael--the victim of the crime--on trial,
Dr. Moriarty helps readers understand the
unique struggles of this inspirational genius
and worldwide humanitarian. [This is the first
published book that covers the Conrad Murray
trial, including the sentencing hearing on
November 29, 2011.]
Moriarty's portrayal of the man includes
explanations of why Michael was not a recluse,
why he became nomadic after his 2005 criminal
trial, why he veiled his children in public,
and why he always kept millions of dollars in
cash within arm's reach. The author affirms
that Michael was heterosexual and that he
struggled for decades with insomnia.
Incorporating more than 200 sources, including
accounts from a variety of people who knew
Michael intimately, Dr. Moriarty reveals also
where he went and what he did during those
last four mysterious years of his life.
a King~His Life & Legacy addresses the
three biggest mistakes Michael made in his
life: one that was only a temporary fix; one
that more than anything else proved his
child-like level of trust; and the one that
caused his tragic demise. From the perspective
and empathy of a psychologist, Dr. Moriarty
not only proposes plausible explanations for
some of the seemingly absurd elements of the
mega-star's private life, but she also
presents fully some of its truly unparalleled
circumstances, which will strain the
imaginations of even those fans who “knew” him
Jackson was the King of Pop.
He was also the King of Controversy.
But mostly, as this book reveals, he was the
King of Hearts. Not only in his
humanitarian acts—he donated more than $300
million to charities—but in his private acts
of kindness that few people know about, he was
a man whose global legacy of goodness
may ultimately outshine his reputation for greatness.
a King~His Life & Legacy is available

and through www.defendingaking.com.
available from amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com;
